    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Best Buy (Atlanta, GA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    It ended up being over the phone. Many times it is understandable that store should have an idea of who would fill particular roles if that person would leave. I knew this was most likely the case and I still applied hoping for the best. It ended up being a quick phone call and seemed disinterested.

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Best Buy (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Don't over talk or over prepare! Managers glaze over after to much info. Just smile and answer to the point. The drug test and online psych test weed out a lot. Just relax.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Best Buy.

    Interview

    The interview process was a 2 step process. First was a phone interview with 2 people ask you different scenarios. About a 45 interview then I was invited to a face to face. Interview with the DM, HR, Store Manager and District manager for the area of the store you working. That interview was more like a greet and meet. It seem like they was just feeling me out. The interview was more relax environment.
